INTRODUCTION 



THIS third part of the collection of Lancashire Inquests 
contains nearly eighty documents (CLXXI to CCXLIX), 
chiefly inquisitions post mortem and ad quod damnum pre- 
served in the Public Record Office. In some cases only the 
writ has survived, the corresponding return having been 
lost. Attention may be called to the inquiry into the con- 
nection of Matilda, widow of Sir Robert de Holand, with the 
violent abduction of Margery de la Beche from the manor 
of Beams, near Reading, on Good Friday, 1347 (CCXXIX), 
because, on a distorted version of one of the writs in the matter, 
printed in Gregson's Fragments, Roby concocted an offensive 
story against the religious orders and the prior of Burscough 
in particular, and printed it in his Traditions oj Lancashire. 
The contrast between his invention and the true history is 
quite ludicrous. It does not appear how the prior was 
connected with the matter at all, as a separate inquiry seems 
to have been dispensed with in his case, but it is reasonable 
to suppose that Sir John de Dalton, or some of his men, on 
arriving in Lancashire, took shelter for a time on some of the 
priory lands, as they did on Lady Roland's manor of Uphol- 
land, and thus gave the prior the appearance of being an 
accessory. The groat French family of Coucy had manors 
in Lancashire, and, as they adhered to the French king when 
Edward III claimed the crown from him in 1337, their English 
estates became forfeit ; hence some of the inquiries recorded 
in this volume (CCXVII, CCXXIIL CCXXVIII). 

The most important documents in the present volume, 
occupying half its pages, are the Extent of 1346 and the 
Minister's Account of 1348, which record the tenants and 
holdings of a large part of the county, being especially full 
as regards the demesne lands of the cavldom. and the ser- 



vi INTRODUCTION 

vices there required from the tenants. The hundreds of 
Leyland and Blackburn are almost unnoticed. 

The former document (CCXXII) is translated in the main 
from a copy in one of Christopher Towneley's volumes, now 
Add. MS. 32103 in the British Museum. It is evident that 
when that copy was made, perhaps early in the seventeenth 
century, the original was in very bad condition in places, for 
several blanks have been left unfilled, which in some cases 
another hand has endeavoured to supply, and in various 
passages what has been written down is unintelligible. It 
begins with an error in the heading, for it should have read 
" Extent of the Lands and Tenements of the Earl of Lancas- 
ter," there being no " Duke " in 1346. Fortunately a large 
part has been preserved in one of Dodsworth's MSS. 
(LXXXVII), being copied from an extent made on Monday 
next before the feast of St. Andrew the Apostle, 9 Henry VI 
(1430). To a small degree this extent records the contem- 
porary holders of lands, but the form is that of the extent of 
1346, and the bulk of the names of tenants are those which 
appear in the earlier return. The extent of 1430 omits many 
interesting details of the earlier return, such, e.g., as the names 
of the burgesses of Liverpool. No doubt in the time of 
Henry VI the burgesses of 1346 had long been dead and their 
tenements had been united or subdivided in many ways, so that 
the transcriber was justified in omitting them as of no value 
for his purpose, but from the purely historical point of view 
the omission is regrettable now that the original is lost. One 
portion of the record was again copied in the sixteenth cen- 
tury, and the MS., now in the editor's possession, was printed 
in one of the Chetham Society's Miscellanies (old series, vol. 
74). For a large part, however, Add. MS. 32103 is the only 
evidence, while the Dodsworth MS., where it is available, 
gives the better text, though not in the same order. In 
these circumstances it has seemed the most useful course to 
give in the present translation a reconstruction of the original 
when the available copy or copies appeared erroneous and 
when from other sources the true reading was ascertainable ; 
but the notes will show what has been done in particular 
cases. 



INTRODUCTION vii 

This Extent should be studied in conjunction with the 
Account of 1348 (CCXXXII), and also with the various 
surveys printed in part II of these Inquests (CXIII, CXIV, 
CXXII, CXLIII). A " new rental " is referred to in the 
Account, but the figures given from it do not always agree 
with those of the Extent (cf. p. 194 with pp. 75, 76). The 
accounts of the lands of Henry de Lacy and of the manor of 
Manchester in part II (XCII, CXII) will supply information 
for much of the district not covered by the Extent of 1346. 
The plan followed by the original compiler of the Extent was 
in each wapentake noticed to describe the borough first ; 
then the tenants and customs of the earl's demesne manors, 
though in Amounderness these are placed last ; and then the 
various rents and services of the free tenants. He began 
with Liverpool in West Derby Hundred, and proceeded north. 
The compiler of the Minister's Account, on the other hand, 
began with the county town, Lancaster, and came south, 
but this document, as it stands, does not seem so orderly as 
the former. 

In Liverpool it will be noticed that Roger de la More, then 
head of the More family, held the largest number of bur- 
gages 8 ; his cousin, John, held *%. Adam de Liver- 
pool held about the same number, 5 j. There were 21 persons 
each holding a single undivided burgage plot, making exactly 
an eighth part of the number of burgages. The tenants of West 
Derby had a special duty of carrying millstones to the mills ; 
those of Crosby had to take brushwood for fuel to Liverpoc 1 
Castle whenever the lord might be resident there. In Amoun- 
derness there was a special duty of carrying victuals when the 
lord went from Ribble Bridge to Lancaster Castle and back. 
The " avowry " of a woman living unmarried is also men- 
tioned. In Lonsdale there were customs concerning the 
carrying of victuals and the maintenance of Lancaster Castle 
and its housekeeping ; also the commuted rents, once paid in 
kind, called Cowmale and Bsltoncow. In Overton " the 
whole community " made up a deficiency in the rent of the 
demesne lands. 

I am greatly indebted to my secretary, Mr. Thomas Price, 
for making the abstracts, which arc here printed, from

the original inquests and extents preserved in the Public 
Record Office ; and to Mr. John Brownbill, M.A., for collating 
the extent of 1346 with Christopher Towneley's and Roger 
Dodsworth's MSS., and for compiling the indexes.

Returns 17/1.] 

WRIT tested at Heghtenhill [Ightenhill], Qth Oct., iyth year (1323), 
to William de Tatham, steward (senescallus) of Blakeburneschire. 

I [William de Tatham] demand from the abbot of Whalley 
on account of his grange of Merlond and the lands and tene- 
ments belonging to the said grange, puture there, for this 
reason : Because one Gilbert de Clifton, some time steward 
of Henry de Lascy, late earl of Lincoln, of Blakeburneshire 
and Rachedale, while those lands and tenements were in 
the said earl's hands, at all his comings into the parts of 
Rachedale, to hold courts for his said lord, used to have 
puture there ; likewise Henry de Kyghelay, Simon de 
Baldreston, Edmund Talbot and Robert de Shireburn, suc- 
cessively stewards of the said earl in those parts, had such 
puture there ; and the said Robert and John de Midhop, 
afterwards stewards there, of Thomas, late earl of Lancaster, 
after those lands and tenements came to the said Thomas's 
hands, had such puture, also John Trauers, my predecessor, 
late keeper of those lands, after they came to the king's 
hands by the said Thomas's forfeiture, had such puture, but 
whether they had it of right or not, I do not yet know ; for 
which puture I have not yet distrained, but intend to distrain 
unless otherwise ordered by the king or his council. 

WRIT tested at Nottingham, 7 Dec., i8th year (1324), to John de 
Lancastre and Gilbert de Syngelton to inquire whether the seneschal 
of Blakeburnschire, whenever they went into the parts of Rachedale 
to hold courts there had puture from the abbot of Whalley and his 
predecessors by reason of their grange of Merlonde and the lands and 
tenements belonging to it except at the request of the abbot and his 
predecessors out of courtesy, or otherwise, and if so how, wherefore, 
and since when. (Brit. Mus., Add. MS. 10374, f. 141).

lands or tenements belonging to it in the time of the king or 
of Thomas late earl of Lancaster or of Henry de Lascy, late

coroner in their lands and fees of Furneys, view of frank-

de Radcliffe; Cat. Pat. R., 1343-5, p. 203.

but they do not know in what year ; and the present abbot 
and convent now hold the chapel as annexed to the church 
of Whalleye, by virtue of the aforesaid purchase ; and that 
Peter de Cestre, formerly parson as well of the said church 
as of the chapel aforesaid, held the chapel by itself as in

and granted their right, if they had any, to the said chapel,

earl of Lincoln, patron of the said chapel, in these words : 

To all to whom this present writing shall come, brother 
Gregory, abbot of the Blessed Place of Stanelowe, and the 
convent of the said place, send greeting in the Lord. Whereas 
the noble man, lord Henry de Lacy, earl of Lincoln, gave 
and granted the church of Whalleye in proprios usus to hold 
to us and our successors for ever, although (licet) the chapel 
within the castle of Cliderhowe is situate within the limits 
of the parish church of Whalleye aforesaid ; we will and 
grant for us and our successors that the said earl and his 
heirs or assigns shall for ever have and hold the said chapel, 
with all rights, things and possessions thereto belonging, 
so that neither we nor our successors, nor any for us, shall 
from henceforth in any manner have power to claim or sell 
any right or claim in the said chapel, or in the rights, things 
and possessions which belong or used to belong to the said 
chapel. In testimony of which thing to this writing we have 
placed our common s^eal. These being witnesses, Sir Robert 
son of Roger, William la Vauasour, John de Hodeleston, 
Robert de Hertford, James de Neuill, Robert de Sherlond, 
John Spryng, knights and others. Given at Stanelowe in

of the church, held the chapel before the church was appropriated to 
the abbey ; ibid., p. 528.

RECORD SOCIETY OF LANCASHIRE 

AND CHESHIRE 
REPORT FOR THE YEAR 1913-14 (36111 YEAR) 



Read at the Annual Meeting held in the Audit Room of the CheUuim 
Hospital, Manchester, on the 27 th day of Octoher 1914. 



DURING the year ending joth June 1914 two volumes have been 
issued to the Members. Volume 67, the Moore MSS. referred to 
in last year's Report, contains the Calendar of the Moore docu- 
ments in the Liverpool Public Library made by Mr. John Brownbill, 
M.A., who was also responsible for the elaborate index ; and a 
Calendar, made by Miss Kathleen Walker, of a further portion of 
the same collection in the possession of the University of Liverpool 
School of Local History and Records. This volume was seen 
through the press by the Honorary Secretary. The sum of ^,'25 
promised towards the cost of printing by the Library Committee of 
the Liverpool Corporation has been duly received. Twenty copies 
were reserved for the School of Local History, which issued a 
circular to its members inviting subscribers. Nineteen copies were 
subscribed for at 128. 6d. each, and the proceeds, ^12, 35. iod., 
were paid to the Society. The cost of an expensive volume was 
thus materially reduced. 

Volume 68 is the Ledger Book of Vale Royal Abbey, edited by 
Mr. Brownbill. The Society is much indebted for the time and 
trouble given by him to this volume, which proved to be one of the 
most interesting of the Society's series. 

The two volumes for next year will be Part VI. of the Marriage- 
Licences for Cheshire and South Lancashire, edited by Mr. Irvine, 
and Part III. of the Lancashire Inquests and Extents from 1333 
onwards, edited by Dr. Farrer, who has again been good enough to 
provide the material. 

A little progress has been made with the transcript of the Star 
Chamber Cases for Lancashire and Cheshire. 

Arrangements are being made for a continuation of the Cheshire 
Marriage Licences. It was decided last year by the Council to 
arrange for a transcript to be made of the important series of Mar- 
riage Licences at Lancaster, and Mr. Brownbill has been asked to 
undertake the work, which he hopes to commence in the winter. 

The Welsh Record Office Bill, mentioned in last year's Report, 
has been re-introduced, and the Cheshire County Council is again 
taking action in order to safeguard the records of the County 
Palatine.
